Samsung’s infinity screen: Maybe Ned Ludd had a point


This week it finally ended. No, not the battle between Hillary and Obama; just visual reality.

The image above is the latest tech toy profiled in Engadget: a Samsung 46-inch High Bright panel that has three unusual features: (1) it’s three times brighter than current LCD screens, (2) it’s so bright it’s visible outdoors, and (3) it was designed to be tiled — stacked side by side with invisible edges between the screens.

Get it? Suddenly people can build ultra-bright, ultra-high-res video walls of infinite height and width, laying visual bricks for walls or ceilings or sides of buildings with images brighter and more clear than reality. The costs to do this will be prohibitive in the next year or two, but soon, probably starting in Dubai and working back to the U.S. through Vegas, you won’t believe your eyes — because everything cast at you, inside and out, may not be worthy of belief.
